Sri­na­gar: Af­ter boy­cotting mu­nic­i­pal and Pan­chayat polls, the Na­tional Con­fer­ence(NC) has upped the ante and sought early As­sem­bly elec­tions in Jammu and Kash­mir.

“Hold elec­tions, and the peo­ple of Jammu and Kash­mir, not New Delhi, will choose the gov­ern­ment they want for them­selves. BJP may at­tempt to get the polls de­layed for the fear of im­mi­nent de­feat due to its mis­gov­er­nance and fail­ure in keep­ing up the prom­ises,” said Dr Fa­rooq Ab­dul­lah, Na­tional Con­fer­ence (NC) pres­i­dent.

He hailed Gover­nor Satya Pal Ma­lik’s de­ci­sion to dis­solve the Leg­isla­tive As­sem­bly and said that this opened up the means to get rid of the “cor­rupt lot” from power.

Dr Ab­dul­lah said a stable and strong gov­ern­ment alone can lead the state to peace and de­vel­op­ment. “The al­liance on crutches do not suit the state which is fac­ing nu­mer­ous chal­lenges. Na­tional Con­fer­ence will get peo­ples’ mas­sive man­date,” he added.

He have a clar­ion call to the op­po­si­tion par­ties across the spec­trum to shun triv­ial dif­fer­ences and make the Ma­ha­gath­band­han stronger to take on the gov­ern­ment in New Delhi.

“It is upon the Op­po­si­tion to unite for the unity of In­dia. The na­tion has no threat from China or Pak­istan, but from the forces in­im­i­cal to sec­u­lar­ism and in­clu­sive ethos of In­dia. Nei­ther Lord Ram nor Al­lah need votes. Pol­i­tics of hate has done im­mense harm to the coun­try,” he said.
